Bachelor of International and Global Studies / Bachelor of Laws

Five years full-time

In this combined Law program, you are able to complete two degrees in five years of full-time study rather than the six years that would normally be required. It is designed so that you will complete the equivalent of Year One of the Bachelors of Laws (LLB) over the three years of your International and Global Studies degree. In Year Four, you will undertake the remaining compulsory units followed by six elective units in Year Five.

There are currently over 50 optional units of study available each year, including advanced units of study in core areas, such as international law, corporate law, comparative law and constitutional law.

You can also select from a variety of specialised units including: environmental law; taxation; family law; criminology; intellectual property; legal theory; law and gender; industrial law; anti-discrimination law and dispute resolution.
